Ghouls, ghosts and
goblins to haunt U'
Sorority hosts Halloween bash
for underprivileged children
By JEFF HUGHES
This weekend, ghosts and
ghouls, bats and banshees, and all
manners of spirits will make their
annual appearance in the scariest
holiday of the year - Halloween.
University students a r e
celebrating the holiday by planning a
variety of activities. Jack-O-Lanterns,
for instance, were bobbing all around
campus during two pumpkin sales.
LSA sophomore Angela
Fanzoni, who ran a sale at the
Stockwell residence hall, said she
sold around $200 worth of
pumpkins. Out of a stash of 350
pumpkins, the unsold 150 are being
sent to decorate rooms in Mott
. Children's Hospital.
The annual sale, Fanzoni said,
encouraged residents to get into the
Halloween spirit. "We needed
Stockwell to be known a little bit,"
Phi Gamma Delta fraternity and
Chi Omega sorority joined forces to
sell pumpkins for a dollar apiece at
the Fishbowl and the Michigan
Union, donating the proceeds to the
National Institute of Burn Medicine.
Last year's sale made around $900,
and Phi Gamma Delta member Doug
Bartman, an LSA junior, said he
hopes this sale will earn about
LSA sophomore Gary Rudnick,
a member of Phi Gamma Delta, said
the sales have gone well. "It's not
too tough for someone to find a
dollar," he said.
Residents and staff in East Quad
are hosting their annual "Halloween
Thing" this weekend, a tradition in
the dormitory. Barry MacDougall,
Residential College senior and a
resident director in East Quad,
expects attendance to reach 500 or
600. The "Thing" includes a dance
with live bands, a Horror Flick
Marathon, and a haunted house.
Some students, however, will
stick to traditions of their younger
days, dressing up as their favorite
goblins to hit the streets in search of
goodies. Libby Tannenbaum, an
LSA sophomore, said she and her
friends want to trick-or-treat as Snow
White and the Seven Dwarves.
"I love to pass out candy,"
Tannenbaum said, "but I always got
sick from all the candy I ate."

Kids beamed and giggled as
members of the Pi Beta Phi sorority
carefully painted hearts, whiskers,
and mustaches on their faces. Then
the kids did the same for their hosts
- but a little sloppier.
The hosts, some from the sorority
and others from Beta Theta Pi
fraternity, then took the children
trick-or-treating through the sorority
house decorated with balloons, black
and orange streamers, and pictures of
"Pi Phi" hosted their second
annual Halloween party last night for
children of Hikone, a low-income
housing community in Ann Arbor.
About 40 children and seven
mothers from Hikone and other low-
income housing areas came to the
party, which provided the children a
safe environment for trick-or-treating.
Carmen Rivera, a parent of one of
the children, said that the party was,
"Really neat. I feel it's better for my
child. I don't have to worry about the
candy" being drugged.
Pi Phi Philanthropy Chair Debbie
Wittlin, who volunteered as a tutor at
Hikone two years ago, came up with
the idea to host children of low-
The sorority's philanthropy com-
mittee planned and organized the
event while the rest of the house
volunteered to drive the children to
the house, buy candy, decorate their
rooms, and distribute Halloween
treats. Members of Beta Theta Pi
fraternity helped with transportation
Hikone, a city-owned public
housing community, provides
supportive services for low-income
families. Sharon Selby, program
director at Family Support Systems,
which is centered at Hikone, said the
party was good because "They (the
children) don't get to go many places
because we don't have any way to
